I live in Chicago. This is going to make me sound evil. I was raised to hate only one thing on this earth and that is the "organization" known as the Chicago Cubs. But today, when I should be happy at their demise, I am dissapointed. Why? Because all of the Cubs fans have lowered their expectations. As I walk around town today I hear a litany of excuses like:
Eh, we really don't have enough bats. (this is BS)
Pinella is crazy for taking Zambrano out. So our manager is an idiot. (sorta true)
Lilly was pitching on three days rest. (yes that is right)
Gawd, Cubs fans are pathetic. Which is why I need them to win a couple games. I need the Cubs fans that I work and live with to have hope, so that hope can be dashed by the tramatic seemingly random event (ie bartman) that will leave them talking about how they are losers for years to come.
BTW, they skinned a goat and hung it from Harry Carey's statue.
Seriously, how does it feel to be cursed by a goat?
